This month has seen steady progression through the registration process with disclosure Scotland. We are continuing to work hard with all relevant bodies to ensure all requirements are exceeded where possible.
Building work is well underway with several rooms currently under construction. The new baby changing room, staff room and toilets will commence shortly as well as work on the garden. We will also be replacing the fire detection systems in the building with a modern integrated solution. It is our goal to ensure the nursery provides an outstanding and safe environment for children and staff, and we are making every effort to ensure this outcome.
Interviews commenced this month with candidates invited to meet with Laura (nursery manager) and myself. At this stage, only candidates with SVQ Level 3 or equivalent are being considered. This will ensure the highest quality of care for opening and beyond.
Our opening hours will be 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday. The nursery will be closed for the week between Christmas and New Year, the Easter bank holiday, and for one training day each year.
It is our aim to open towards the end of September but we will not compromise on quality by rushing. We plan to communicate a fixed opening date next month including details of open days.
